Directions to Calella de Palafrugell from Barcelona

If driving from Barcelona airport follow the signs for Girona/Francia AP7 on the Ronda de Dalt (B20). This is the expressway across the west of the city and can be quite busy at the rush hour. You will connect with the AP7 on the north of the city.
Alternatively, and faster at peak times, continue past the 16b Ronda de Dalt B20 exit and take the 16a following the Girona signs ( for heavy vehicles). Continue on the A2, then the B23 always following the Girona signs. (The heavy vehicle component disappears now). This continues on as the AP2 and connects with the AP7 to France. Beware the A2 and AP2 have radar!

The AP7 itself, is the main motorway from France to Barcelona, but is never that busy. Continue up the AP7 until you reach Sortida 9 for Platja d’Aro/Lloret/Palamos (Port) etc. Take the first exit, 9A although the 9B takes you onto the same road after a slight detour.

You are now on the C35 and should follow this road with signs showing Sant Feliu de Guixols/Platja d’Aro/Palamos. Continue on this country road and you will pass the road for Lloret De Mar and then the turn off for Llagostera. Follow Platja d’Aro/Palamos signs. (Please note that the road number does change after Santa Christina d’Aro to the C31).

Continue on, passing Platja d’Aro and then Palamos.  A sign will say Palafrugell 6 km. Continue on for 6km and take Exit 331 sign-posted Palafrugell sud, Mont-Ras and Platges. Continue straight ahead at the next two roundabouts and take a right at the third, following the Platges. After 300 yards, at the next roundabout (ALDI) take the exit marked Platges, Calella, Tamariu and Llafranc. Continue for 200 yards through a small roundabout, and then on for 0.5 mile, over a few “bumps”, to the next large roundabout (Funky Pizza). At this roundabout take right up the  dual carriageway. Continue along the autovia through two more roundabouts and at the third, Calella/Llafranc, turn right. Continue over a small roundabout, past the Hotel Alga and take first right up Carrer Chopitea. At the top of the hill on the left is Casa Dos Torres. It is the first house on the left up this road and has green gates.

You can park on the grass verge or outside the house.

There is also a bus service from Barcelona airport passing through the main bus terminal (Estacio del Nord). This service is covered by Sarfa to Palafrugell. From the airport takes about 3 hours and from central BCN about 2 hours.

The train service is not particularly convenient to Palafrugell. The nearest train station to us is Caldes de Malavella just south of Girona airport (40 minutes away) or alternatively Girona town (about 1 hour away).
